Direct access is a quick way to begin physical therapy so you can start feeling better and begin your recovery process quicker. Virginia law allows patients to receive PT without a referral.
If your health insurance carrier covers direct access, you can receive up to 30 days of treatment without a referral if the initial PT evaluation demonstrates medical necessity.
When you make an appointment with us, we will help you confirm if your individual plan will cover direct access.
When we evaluate you, we will also assess if you are appropriate for PT or if you need to be referred to your doctor or a specialist.
Direct access can help you save time and money and jump start your road to recovery.
